Bicycling Making Headlines Nationwide
October 26, 2005
When gas prices rose to record levels in August, national media interest in cycling skyrocketed and has remained strong all fall. Bikes Belong has been an often-cited source on sales and participation trends. We’ve talked about anecdotal reports of supplier and retailer sales gains and have emphasized that this is a time of rediscovery of all of bicycling’s benefits. We’ve been quoted in USA Today, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, dozens of other major city dailies, as well as national wire service articles and NPR and network television affiliate reports. This publicity is generating a buzz around bicycling nationwide, which we hope will inspire more people to dust off their trusty wheels or try cycling for the first time.
